SPRING AWAKENING - Frogmore Paper Mill - 17th - 20th April 2019

(Age Recommendation; 16+ unless accompanied by an adult) Vivo D'Arte present Spring Awakening.

An international sensation and winner of 8 Tony and 4 Olivier Awards

Perhaps the defining musical of the last decade, Spring Awakening combines an electrifying rock score and genre-defying writing to tell the story of sexual and adolescent discovery. Silenced and dismissed in the firmly censored world of 19th century Germany, a group of teenagers are forced to discover the truth behind their feelings unaided. They find that through each other they unlock a bold and brave new world – with both beautiful and tragic consequences.

VIVO D'ARTE SCHOOL OF THEATRE ARTS - Aylesbury Waterside Theatre

We are thrilled to announce the new Vivo D’Arte School of Theatre Arts in partnership with Aylesbury ATG Waterside Theatre in the new year. In contrast to many traditional stage and theatre schools we propose a different, and we believe, uniquely exciting approach to theatre arts training. From the moment you begin the process with us at Vivo D’Arte, whether you are brand new or an experienced performer already, you will quickly realise that we work differently, and the set-up we have created closely emulates the realities of working within the theatre arts industry.

The school’s aim is not only to provide the highest quality training in the musical theatre acting disciplines, but also, to familiarise our performers with the workings, structure and professionalism required to work in a theatre company. This will be done through an exciting and interesting programme relevant to all ages, where everyone will have lots of fun and make friends along the way too! Our dedicated and experienced team of staff are also arranged with this theatre-based model in mind: Artistic Director, Resident Choreographer, Musical Director, Company Manager, Technical Support, etc.

Partnering with the ATG Aylesbury Waterside Theatre and having this as our regular rehearsal and performance space is a fantastic benefit to us as a company and for our performers. It is a multi award-winning theatre with beautiful, contemporary and invigorating spaces to use, whilst working alongside their hugely supportive management, administrative and front of house team of staff. Aside from the obvious benefits of being located within a large regional theatre, our partnership also includes exclusive member-access to a long list of theatre and performance-based opportunities including: live performances for local large-scale events, well-known festivals and fêtes, seasonal launches, galas and parades (e.g. Whizzfest, Live in the Park, Christmas Celebrations), meeting with industry-professionals and cast members, film and radio opportunities etc.

Lee Duffy, Aylesbury Waterside Theatre General Manager said:

We’ve been privileged to welcome lots of young performers over the last eight years to showcase their talent and get a first-hand experience of theatre, and for us this feels like the next natural step. Being able to nurture home-grown talent within our very own venue walls will be incredibly rewarding, and with Vivo D’Arte’s expertise and passion, the delivery is set to be second to none.’
Dan Cowtan Vivo D’Arte Managing Director said:
‘Vivo D’Arte have always been a committed theatre arts training and production company, however to be given the opportunity to grow our partnership with Aylesbury Waterside Theatre and open our new weekly School of Theatre Arts is extremely exciting. We always strive to give our performers the very best in industry training, insight and experiences, and with a superb team and venue behind this venture we know we can give even more young people this wonderful opportunity’.
